On a Red One show right now--Day002. Using my G-RAIDs as my lifelines to stay afloat. Brand new Sonnet RAID that I got the day before Day001 seemed to be working fine when I first formatted/initialized and then when I went to R3D Data Manager to offload to the RAID for the first time--!WHAM!--Grey Screen of Mac-Death. Had to hard kill the computer. Tried switching PCI slots, no good. Tried a RAID0 instead of RAID5, no good. No help from Sonnet, whose employees are enjoying an elongated holiday break (until Jan 4).
If you have suggestions, PLEASE email me directly at:
Email only, I will be on set with no internet tomorrow (and for the next 3 weeks). Blackberry will get me emails at least.
Could the enclosure be the problem? A Lemon if you will?
Oh, and I don't think it's the card, since I've been running my G-RAIDs through the eSATA card no problem.
